Scissor-Tail Flycatcher in Habitat

1/1600s | f/8 | ISO 200 | Fill 

Here is a image from Wednesday taken at the reservoir close to my home. I was trying to approach 2 Great Egrets that were fishing in the shallows of the lake by crouching low and slowly moving through the reeds and grass when this scissor-tail landed close by. I was able to get a couple of shots before it went off in pursuit of a insect. I really liked how this one turned out with the sense of habitat and loose comp.

  1. Beautiful shot Landon, perfect head turn and composition. It must be awesome being able to photograph this magnificent birds! Good thing he didn't land too close as that tail is huge!

  2. Excellent shot and wonderful picture.
